I’ve been thinking a lot about edges lately; especially since that really funky dude Felix Baumgartner successfully made a supersonic jump from 128,000 feet above the earth! You can see it here:
I love the way Felix raises his arms in triumph right after he successfully lands. In that moment I felt a shared elation in this awesome completely unfathomable feat. My heart in some way beating in synch with his; the rush and thrill of accomplishment and witness is a symbiotic experience in any moment.
I meet my edges and help support others to meet theirs, on and off the mat, on a daily basis. It is a sacred experience to practice, believe through the heart that the goal can be met, practice some more, breathe into the deep deep belief within myself or for others, practice again and ultimately achieve and breathe and experience the joy of triumph. I love it, every time I feel it myself and even more especially when I am there to uphold and uplift others toward the fullest expression of their most wondrous self.
It is a heartfelt experience, an expression of the swirly shimmering mystery that is an engagement with a life force far far more powerful than anything I could have ever imagined. I’m humbled by it and grateful to be a part of it each and every time I experience its magic.
So, kudos and my most heartfelt appreciation to Felix for his huge and beyond unbelievable jump. Also to today’s students; Nancy, Alex, Judy and Anneliese for having the integrity to release and express and meet their respective edges in a practice that is beautiful, inspiring and oftentimes really really hard.
To edges and wonder!
Let’s keep doing it together in love with the astonishment that manifests, flush and broken open, vulnerable, alive and awake!
